Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An aging but formidable strip club owner, Claudiu "Manco" Kapak, is robbed as he places his cash receipts in a banks night-deposit box. Enraged, he sends his henchmen out to find a suspect who is spending lots of cash and is too new to Los Angeles to realize hes stolen from a gangster. Their search leads to Joe Carver, an innocent who evades capture and sets out to make Kapak wish hed chosen someone else. Meanwhile, the real culprit, Jefferson Davis Falkins, and his girlfriend Carrie seem to believe theyve found a whole new profession: robbing Manco Kapak.

Lieutenant Nick Slosser, the detective in charge of the puzzling and increasingly violent case, has his own troubles, including worries about how hes going to afford to send the oldest child of each of his two bigamous marriages to college without making their mothers suspicious. As this odd series of difficulties explodes into a triple killing, Carver finds himself in the middle of a gang war over Kapaks empire, while Falkins and Carrie journey into territory more strange and violent than either had imagined.

Synopsis:

Thanks to a heart transplant, retired FBI agent Terry McCaleb has a new lease on life. But his plan for early retirement is thwarted when he learns that his heart donor's death was no accident. Racked with the guilt of having lived because of someone else's murder, he springs into action. Now, his own investigation leads him to a crime far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.

Blood Work is a good, old-fashioned detective novel. Ex-FBI agent is convinced to take on one more case; case becomes complicated; agent finds himself in trouble; situation is resolved; everybody but the criminal is happy. Thrilling enough to hold my interest, but familiar enough to be comforting and comfortable, this book was perfect for my state of mind when I read it. I would certainly recommend it.

Every book by Connelly is very good - but I rate this at or near the top - along with Black Ice
